[Note: 10-20 means 10 visits or more but less than 20 visits] Taking mid-interval values, it was found that the mean numbers of visits was 48.6 visits. Find the value of x. 2. Pat earned 40,000 in 2009. His standard rate cut off point is 33,000 while his tax credit is 4,800. The lower rate of tax is 20% and the higher rate is 40%. However, Pat actually paid the Government 1,200 for his taxes and they are not happy as they have realised he has not paid enough. They have issued Pat with a bill for the remainder of the money he owes and have added on interest at 7.5% on the amount he owes. They also added 52c onto the total for the stamp on the letter. Calculate exactly how much Pat owes the Government.

1,750 lottery prize was won by a group of 6 people. They must pay tax on this money at a rate of 17.5%, and then pay 100 for a minibus to collect their winnings and then divide up the total between them. However, a solicitor is hired to oversee the splitting up of the money and charges 1% of the money after all the costs but before it is divided up. Find out how much each person actually gets, to the nearest euro. 2. On the first week of the month, a number of people entered a draw where the prize was 3,000. The second week, 5 more people joined the group and they won it again but each person received 50 less this time. Find out how many winners were there on the second week. 3. g is a function such that g ( x) = ax 2 + bx + 1 ; g(1) = 0 and g(2) = 3. If (t, t+1) is a point on g(x), find t where t and t 0

The mean age of 5 scouts sitting around a camp fire is 15 years. A scout leader sits down with her guitar and joins the scouts for a song. The mean age of the people around the camp fire is now 21 years. Calculate the scout leaders age.

2.
Lorraine invests 6,000 in her bank for 3 years compound interest at a rate of 4.5% p.a. At the end of the first year, she withdraws 1,500 and at the end of the second year, she withdraws another 1,500. If she must pay tax at a rate of 20% on the interest, how much does she have in the bank at the end of the 3rd year, to the nearest euro?

3.

In the triangle PQR, |QR|=18cm, |<PQR|=32o and |<QRP|=96o. If PS is the bisector of |<QPR|, calculate |PS|, correct to one decimal place and giving units.

m is the line 3x + ky = 11. The line m is perpendicular to the line z: 4x 3y = 27. Find the coordinates of the point where m cuts the y axis. 2. h is a function such that h(x) = x2 +x + q. If h(-3) = 0, solve the equation h(x+5) = 0. 3. Two buildings, A and B stand on the same horizontal ground. The smaller building, A, is 25m high. The angle of elevation of the top of the building A from the foot of building B is 32o. If building B is 76.2m high, calculate |<Q|, the measure of the angle of elevation of the top of building A from the top of building B to the nearest degree.

4.
